Business Data Catalog Definition Editor Installation Error 'SetParent failed for Database'

If you get a 'SetParent failed for Database' error during the installation of the Microsoft Business Data Catalog Definition Editor, allow remote connections to the local SQL Server 2005 Express Edition server:

  1. Start the "SQL Server Surface Area Configuration" application.
  2. Click on "Surface Area Configuration for Services and Connections".
  3. Under Database Engine, select Remote Connections.
  4. Select "Local and remote connections".
  5. Click on OK.
  6. Close the application.
  7. Retry the BDC Editor installation.
